Our Vision

Our Mission

At the Wild Onion Market, we cultivate strong relationships with the food we eat, the people who produce it, and our community as a whole.

Our Core Values

We are an intentionally inclusive community with the following core values:
a

Healthy food access for all

Fresh, healthy food is a right, not a privilege. We are creating policies to ensure that our food supply is affordable, fresh, pesticide-free and nutritious.
a

A resilient local food system

From our farmers and producers to our store employees, we will cultivate collaborative and fair relationships. We strive to help bring economic prosperity to urban and rural communities that are part of our regional food system.
a

Environmental stewardship

Caring for our shared planet is integral to all our decision making. From our supply chain to waste disposal and energy consumption to bulk food, we will make it easier for shoppers to live green.

What’s a Co-op?

WE AREN’T JUST COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY — WE’RE OWNED BY IT.

A cooperative (co-op) is a values-driven business, which makes it different from other grocery stores. We are community-owned, which allows us to send our profits directly back to our members, our store, and to the community we serve. Because of this, we can remain committed to a triple bottom line: the economic, social and environmental responsibilities that shape our co-op from the ground up.
